THE last few weekends saw towns and cities across Spain burst into colourful life as they each celebrated carnival. Almeria was no exception as many towns held their own celebrations.
Albox transformed from a working town into party central as residents worked hard to ensure that everyone enjoyed themselves. The children’s excitement was very apparent and energy levels were sky high.
After the children’s parade in the late afternoon it was the turn of the adults to party with their own parade and a party that carried on until the wee hours.
Mojacar, too, handed its usual big bash on a plate with people travelling from near and far to join in the celebrations including the parades. Turre wowed the crowds with plenty of street-based activities including the burial of the sardine, a traditional event that culminated in a bonfire in the town square.
Huercal Overa turned orange as the fruit was celebrated in big style and the winners of the children’s parade nabbing top prize with their bright orange outfits.
Almeria City honoured Sergio Santiago Muñoz who died in August 2014. Sergio was a huge fan of carnival and would be thrilled to have been honoured in such style.
